Gigi Hadid may be the reining queen of athleisure, but it seems she is trading in her sweats for suiting—at least for the time being. After all, today isn’t just any day, it’s the start of New York Fashion Week. When Hadid left her apartment in Manhattan this morning, she buttoned into tailored separates that demonstrated how a true supermodel might dress for the job.
Between their dark hue and sharp silhouette, Hadid’s double-breasted blazer and trousers had an androgynous appeal—though she added a ladylike flourish with a tie-neck blouse in a quirky print that recalled John Galliano’s infamous 2000 newspaper motif, a fashion moment recently brought back by her pal Kendall Jenner. Hadid made the look her own by piling on all of her accessory signatures: futuristic Poppy Lissiman sunglasses, Stuart Weitzman ankle booties, and her ever-present Stalvey mini top-handle bag. Whether or not the businesslike fashion statement was deliberate, one thing is certain: over the coming days and weeks, Hadid will be working overtime.
